Remember i told you about the Methi Dal my friend keeps talking about? Well, i finally made it and it turned out great. I had some friends over on Saturday for lunch and on Friday i slogged it out and made a whole lotta food, 1, because i could sleep in late on Saturday and not wake up early to cook and 2, i dint have to do any major cooking for the rest of the week :). I don't think i have ever made so much food in my life. The girls ate well and i didn't have much left over. So the 2nd reason was lame.
The methi dal recipe is exactly the same as this recipe, except you add the cleaned and chopped methi leaves (about 1 cup) after the tomatoes are well cooked. I also added a dash of fenugreek powder just before i took it off the heat and that tasted awesome. I avoided the coriander leaves and the last tadka as well. I found this interesting recipe on Soma's blog and I should try it out the next time i get methi leaves.
